BEIJING (AFP/Reuters) - An Indian military delegation arrived in Beijing on Sunday for a six-day visit, an Indian official said, marking the resumption of defence ties that were frozen for a year over a visa dispute. The eight-member delegation, headed by Major General Gurmeet Singh, will visit the Chinese capital and the restive northwestern region of Xinjiang, a senior Indian defence official told AFP earlier. A spokesman for the Indian embassy in Beijing confirmed the delegation arrived Sunday afternoon but could not provide details on their itinerary or with whom they would meet on the Chinese side. India suspended military exchanges in July last year after Beijing refused to provide a proper stamped visa to the then head of Indias Northern Army Command, which controls the region of Indian-occupied Kashmir.
